A UCL-IJN Interdisciplinary Workshop 

Understanding the way that humans experience space requires a coordinated effort from a broad variety of disciplines. This workshop brings together researchers in philosophy, architecture, urban health science, psychology and neuroscience from UCL and from Institut Jean Nicod (ENS, EHESS, CNRS) to tackle together this multifaceted question. This workshop is organized by Pablo Fernandez Velasco (IJN, UCL).
